Norfork and White River Fishing Report
April 26, 2010

High-water cycle may be waning,
fishing remains good

I have been very busy lately completing fly orders – dedicated guides have to do what it takes when the guiding business slows down. Even though April offers some of the years best weather and fishing, for whatever reason, the guide business almost always slacks off. May is looking quite a bit busier, and with any luck, there could be some low water in the next week.

May is looking quite a bit busier, and with any luck, there could be some low water in the next week. The Norfork and White are running water most days, but rarely is it at full-power. Float fishing has been excellent. Taneycomo has been running in the one to two-unit ranges, so both boats and waders are getting in on the action.

Secret trout fishing spot

If the area stays relatively dry, low water will become more predominant. The best dry fly action in Arkansas is usually in May and June, so there is still a chance of experiencing the incredible dry fly fishing that happens during low water periods this time of year.

If you are interested in any fly selections, please let me know, as my guiding schedule will be taking up most of my time in the near future. Look for more reports from the rivers this week, and I have heard of some great fishing taking place virtually everywhere. We will be putting a newsletter out in the next week, so keep an eye out for that. Everyone’s support is greatly appreciated, and I hope to see you all out on the water very soon.
